Design and Technology
At Ravensworth Terrace Primary School our children are encouraged to use their imagination, creativity and develop their practical skills to make appealing, purposeful products. They learn the importance of planning, risk taking and evaluation and build on each of these skills to help them move forward in their journey in design technology. Our children learn about and reflect on the ways in which technology impacts on the world around them and how different products have evolved over time. They learn that products have to be designed for a particular audience and a specific purpose, tailoring the product and its specification to the needs of both. Our children use a range of tools, materials and objects and draw upon their scientific knowledge as well as skills acquired in art, maths and other areas of the curriculum. It is a subject where children make links between all areas of learning and where they build resilience, perseverance and thinking skills.
